Nate Diaz has responded to the Jon Jones drug test fiasco in the most Nate Diaz way possible.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight is no stranger to incendiary tweets, and has previously gone after the world's largest combat sports promotion for its "bitch ass" uniform deal with Reebok. In addition, he also blasted former opponent Donald Cerrone for sucking ... well, it's NSFW so just see it here.

Now Diaz takes aim at the way UFC handled Jones' positive drug test for cocaine:

Jones admitted himself to rehab on Tuesday, a "proud" moment for UFC President Dana White.

But Diaz suggests his boss already knew about the positive drug test when White recommended that "Bones" -- who is fresh off a unanimous decision win over Daniel Cormier at UFC 182 -- should embrace the role of "bad guy."

He may not have a choice, after this latest public misstep.
